Ta'wil of the Saaq from Ibn Abbas (ra)
This article explores what the word "Shin" (Saaq in arabic) refers to in the following Qur'anic verse -
"On a day when shin shall be exposed, they shall be ordered to prostrate, but be unable" (Qurâan 68:42)
It shows that the great Sahabi, Ibn Abbas (ra) actually made ta'wil (figurative interpretation) of this word. It is also a rebuttal to those who disputed its authenticity.
